White looking to kick start the season with a win over Gillingham in the EFL Cup.Defender John White says the EFL Cup clash against Gillingham at Roots Hall on Tuesday night (7:45pm kick off) is the perfect opportunity to put right the wrongs of the 3-1 weekend defeat to the same opponents.
White, who is battling with new signing Jason Demetriou for the right-back spot in the Blues starting eleven, is hoping a win tomorrow can kick start Southend’s season.
“It’s a chance for us to put things right for ourselves more than anything and obviously the fans as well who we feel we let down a bit being the first game.” He said.
“It’s only the first game, and there is lots for us to work on but we’ve got plenty of opportunities to do that.
“I know the gaffer will have something in mind for the game tomorrow night so it’s just another chance for us to improve on things and work on ourselves and try and put right what we did at the weekend.
“We take it game by game and we just want to win every game that we play in so the cup game is a good chance for us to go and make that step forward.”
